About the Khadi Mahotsav
Khadi is the fabric of freedom struggle and the Father of the nation. Mahatma Gandhi developed the concept of Khadi as a means to provide employment to the unemployed rural population.
Hon’ble PM has given the mantra of ‘Khadi for Nation, Khadi for Fashion’, and Khadi is now seen as a fashion statement. It is now used in denim, jackets, shirts, dress material, stoles, home furnishings, and apparel accessories like handbags.
With an objective of promoting Khadi and Village Industries, Handloom and handicraft products, ODOP products, and products of various traditional and cottage industries manufactured locally and to further promote the idea of the “Vocal for Local” campaign and ‘AtmaNirbhar Bharat Abhiyan’ envisioned by the Hon’ble Prime Minister, Govt. of India has initiated Special Campaign “Khadi Mahotsav”.
The campaign will be organized across the country from October 2 to October 31 every year.
